Maassluis (population: 32,847 in 2004) is a town in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland. The municipality covers an area of 10.11 kmē (of which 1.51 kmē water).


It received city rights in 1811.


Economic activity until 1960

Up until 1960, the cities' main income was generated by the harbour it is situated round. The city inhabited lots of fishermen who fished mainly at the coast of the North Sea and the coast of Iceland. Also, there is still a big ships agency called Dirkzwager.


The city was also the home of the Tug Boat company Smit-Tak.


World War II

Like a lot of other countries in the Netherlands, the active working population was transferred to Germany for working in the war industry. Maassluis' ancient church suffered a lot in the second world war when it was bombed by allied bombers.

Philips van Marnix, lord of Sint-Aldegonde - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (706 words)
After spending some time in Friesland and in the Palatinate he was in 1570 taken into the service of William, prince of Orange, and in 1572 was sent as his representative to the first meeting of the States-General assembled at Dordrecht.
In 1573 he was taken prisoner by the Spaniards at Maaslandsluys, but was exchanged in the following year.
He was sent as the representative of the insurgent provinces to Paris and London, where he in vain attempted to secure the effective assistance of the Anglican Tudor Queen, Elizabeth I of England.
